Debian 6.0 Squeeze - First impressions

Posted 08-05-2011 at 08:13 PM by DJ Shaji

I have been using Fedora since time immortal, but what with the stupid python installer and the ~1GB minimum RAM requirement, I was unable to use it any further. I mean, the installer refuses to install on my system. So I looked around for another Linux system, and perhaps the biggest name after (or before?) Red Hat is Debian. I had dabbled with Debian once before, and so I downloaded the netinst CD, and presto, it was up and running in no time!

So, right now, I'm selecting and installing all kinds of stuff via aptitude. Debian is most definitely the easiest to use and the most rock solid operating system I've ever come across.

The default installation took about 15 minutes, and uses 400MB of space, and uses around 26 MB RAM. SWEET STUFF!
